The Miami Heat defeated the Denver Nuggets on Monday by the score of 97-94. The win moved the Heat to 24-7, first place in the Southeast Division.  Veteran shooting guard Dwyane Wade, who has battled injuries all season, played only 18 minutes due to back spasms. 

According to a tweet by Miami HEAT,

Wade, who has missed eight games this season, will be a game-time decision tonight against the Golden State Warriors.  Should Wade not be able to play, expect Roger Mason Jr. and Ray Allen to get the bulk of the minutes at shooting guard.  Mason is averaging 4.3 points in 12.2 minutes per game. Allen, in his eighteenth NBA season, is averaging 10.6 points in 25.6 minutes per game.

Wade was selected by the Heat with the 5th overall selection in the 2003 NBA draft.  He's averaging under 20 points for game for the first time since his rookie season, although his shooting percentage of 54.3 is the highest of his career.  In 688 career games, Wade is averaging 24.6 points, six assists and five rebounds per game.
